Intel stock cooler problem

post #1 of 29
Thread Starter 
I swapped my motherboard from my old Intel one to a G1 Sniper 3, and my cooler doesn't seem like it's working properly anymore. It used to keep my CPU below 75 degrees while running prime 95, but not it goes over 85 degrees on prime 95. I have remounted the cooler twice, and the TIM spread looked like the cooler was making decent contact with the IHS. I'm using MX-2 TIM.

The only thing I can think of is that there is not enough mounting pressure or possibly the motherboard has greatly increased the CPU voltage.

Can anyone give me some suggestions? I'm getting a NH-D14 around christmas, so I need to be able to hold out that long.

what mhz is the cpu at?

your temps while still safe even at 85*C are on the edge.. i wouldn't be overly concerned unless you are pushing the CPU at extended periods of time. for an i5-2400 a NH-D14 is massive overkill for a non overclocking chip, unless you plan to upgrade your CPU in the future.. if you dont plan on changing you chip something like a CM hyper 212+ will do nicely.

Could it be that the new motherboard is trying to turn the fans down? Sometimes the default settings will try and reduce noise that way.

What /\ /\ /\ /\ said.

And is the cpu running at same voltage on new board as on old board?

I'm going to swap out the processor to a 2500k/3570k pretty soon.

I ran P95 again, and it got to 90 degrees eventually before I turned it off.

It's running at 1.176 volts. I have no idea what it was running at before.

The fan is at 2000RPM, which is the max.

Not familiar with your motherboard but many have automatic OC feature. May have something to do with it. Definitely appears to be mobo causing the change as you say nothing else has been changed or modified.

I suspect a better cooler will deal with it but that doesn't find and/or deal with the source of the problem.

I just decided to run P95 again, and it seems to not be going over 87 degrees. Maybe the TIM needed some time to cure or something like that.

maybe, also you could try lowering the volts manually and see if that lowers the temps even more and still be stable..

Yeah, I'll try that. is
1.176 volts normal for an i5 2400?
